excellent choice. i've listened to 07-19 so many times. one of my favorite altheas and perhaps my favorite foolish heart. Terrapin is one of the best later versions I've heard and the Dew is killer. Love the Sugaree as well, just wish it was longer.

All nights are amazing tho! Nearly every song played is an all time version. And yea, that sugaree, it is a great one. Also one of my top altheas. How about the legendary desolation or mind melting deal?

The deal in insane as well. Never been a huge fan of the way they did Desolation, maybe I'm just too much of a Dylan snob. This version is definitely one of the few that I'll listen to more than once though.

07-19 is the only show of the 3 I have a copy of so obviously I'm most familiar with it. I will check out two proceeding shows as well as it's been several years since I've heard them

I love the Bucket as well. I rarely listen to that song anymore; heard it way too much at this point but this version I always liked a lot.

Victim or the Crime, also one of my favorites

oh man you gotta check out the other shows. 2nd set of the 2nd night is meh... but the first sets for both are legendary and the whole 1st night is just pure magic. Probably the night I would pick if I could only go to one. The first set of night 3 might be the best first set I know of.

personally, i cant stand dylan's desolation row.

"the whole 1st night is just pure magic. Probably the night I would pick if I could only go to one. The first set of night 3 might be the best first set I know of."
It was an amazing show, WD; and in your own yard.
It was the only night of the three that wasn't raining or sodden, but it was cloudy. Just on cue, though, as the clouds parted to reveal a huge, bright full moon, the chords came out from Jerry's guitar: "da da da dumm, da da da dumm" and the whole place erupted in the most incredible "Standing on the Moon".
The "Bid You Goodnight" was extra cool, too, because they had just brought it out of the attic and no one was expecting it.
I had third row center seats, but I never liked seats and spent most of the show up in the Phill side beer garden.

cool story.

I like when the crowd goes nuts during the sugaree verse "still have to stand out in the pourin rain" from the third night.

Yeah, they felt sorry for us; they sang all the rain songs.
I was there with my brother, on a Harley. It was a mud bowl.
We actually had a room, in town, at the Hilton for the second night, but couldn't get out because of the mud. We got out the next morning and went anyway to clean up until chek out time. We left a huge bathtub ring around the hotel jacuzi.
I did meet some tapers there, though, and had copies of the shows in the mail box when I got back home.
